  • Remembrance Sunday in the UK commemorates those who have died in world wars and other conflicts.
  • Following tradition, the royal family gathered at the Cenotaph to mark the solemn event.
  • It was the first service to take place since the Queen’s death, and the royals looked somber.

On Sunday, senior members of the royal family – including Princess Anne, Prince Edward, Prince William, and King Charles – took part in the annual Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the Cenotaph in London, UK.

It’s the first time the family put on such a show of unity since the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8, 2022. She was 96 years old.
